Product review: Pura Naturals household, personal, and baby products

By Angelene 

With the holidays coming and with family and friends celebrating with us, we many times forget about how much preparation and cleaning has to take place.  Pura Naturals, a new, California-based company, offers an earth-friendly alternative: plant-based sponges featuring the same durable and absorbing technology used to clean up sensitive waterways. Is this something you would be interested in trying?

Pura Naturals has created a new line of personal care and household cleaning products.  Pura Naturals has products for all of your every day needs.   The company makes personal care products for your face, body and when active. Products for babies are infused with natural lavender to help promote sleep.  
BeBetterFoam Sponge

Pura Naturals has harnessed the cleaning power of BeBetterFoam™, an innovation that was first invented to clean up the oil spill in the Gulf. The unique foam is oleophilic and hydrophobic, meaning it lifts oil, grease and grime like a magnet while resisting water, naturally inhibiting bacteria growth, odor and other issues often associated with household sponges.

What’s more, the sponges are made with a scrubber pad crafted from walnut shells and recycled materials, ideal for difficult counter-top stains while safe on appliances prone to scratches. Each sponge available in the household line is free of petroleum by-products, parabens and synthetic ingredients.  Not only are Pura Naturals products better for you and your family but they are better for the enviroment.   The BeBetterFoams helps wipe and clean up things up easily but absorbing oil, fats, fuels and other contaminents.  It can also be used again and again with out breaking down.   There is a 30 day gaurantee on their products.  

All of Pura Naturals products are infused with Level Naturals milled soap.  Every bar is 100% vegan, gluten-free.  All of Pura Naturals products are made in the USA. 

Pura Naturals cleaning products are made for the entire home.  They have a kitchen line of scrubbers and sponges that work for cleaning every part of the kitchen including hard baked food on your dishes.

Pura Naturals household and personal care products will change the way you clean. They’ll help you to “live better and be better™." These pads are like no other sponges you have ever used. They are highly effective at absorbing oils, fuels, fats, and a wealth of other contaminants.

I was excited to try Pura Naturals products.  I was able to try t he kitchen sponge, active soap-infused sponge as well as the soap-infused eucalyptus body bar.  I was a little hesitant at first when trying a sponge in the kitchen. I had gotten rid of sponges years ago due to their increase in germs as well as the smell they sometimes get.   I was impressed with how pure naturals sponge never smelled and every time I got the sponge wet it had a really nice lather to it.   I was impressed with how quickly and easily my counters were cleaned.  

I really loved the Pura naturals soap-infused eucalyptus body bar.  It smelled fantastic and I felt clean afterwards.  I loved how easy it was to activate and clean my body leaving it feeling refreshed and cleaned.   It lasted weeks as well.   I did notice that the sponge needs to be kept to the side of the tub where it won't continue to get wet while others shower or where the shower stream hits the sponge.  The sponge will not last as long due to it being continually wet.   Despite that one thing I was impressed and really loved the product.

The Science Behind Pure Naturals 

Pura Naturals™ products are made from BeBetterFoam™, which was created by Advanced Innovative Recovery Technology, Inc. (AIRTech). AIRTech was created in response to the British Petroleum (BP) oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in April of 2010 — one of the worst oil disasters in history. The immediate impact on the environment and wildlife was devastating; to make matters worse, many of the conventional cleanup methods were also damaging to the ecosystem.

AIRTech's solution, BeBetterFoam™, is a non-toxic plant-based foam that repels water while absorbing oil and silicone.  In fact, BeBetterFoam™ will pick up virtually all hydrocarbons, making it a unique and ultra-effective material for cleanup. It’s also EPA-approved for use in all waterways, including rivers, lakes, and oceans. In addition to being highly absorbent, it is so resilient that it can be used again and again without breaking down.
